yet another day off down the drain.

i had high hopes for today, but they were foiled by a sore throat and stuffy nose. it was all i could do to get off the couch. i'm going to bed in about 10 minutes... and i don't have to be to work until 830 tomorrow, so i'm hoping a good night's sleep will help. i can't afford to skip work, so i guess it really doesn't matter if i feel better, but i hope i do. it sucks to work while you're sick.

spent sunday in a shopping... me, my mom and grama went to ikea. we left san jose at 9am and didn't get back until 9:30 pm. i only spent $300... my big purchase was a jennylund chair (but in white, not red stripes). i also got a zaftig inflatable square thing, which i think was intended to be a kid's toy, but works great as an ottoman. i got a fuzzy white slipcover for it that has ears and a tail.... looks like a bunnyrabbit. it creeps my sister out because it dont's have a face on it, but whatever. also got some lamps, picture frames, a colander, some blue wood stain for my desk, and new frying pans. it's a good thing i stayed away from the dishes.... otherwise i might have come home with some. i have a slight obsession with dishes, which is silly since all i ever actually use are the corningware ones i got a at kmart. ;-)

found out that ed didn't get canceled. this is a good thing.... love that show. i think i've only missed three episodes of it since it started. :-)

ugh, is it really almost 11? i need to go to sleep!

where does the time go??

man, one day i blink and all of a sudden it's may? what the hell?

and what the hell is with this weather? it rained today. rain in may? come on.

life is still working, working, working. there are times when i wish i had a life. but other time, i love the fact that after an exhausting day at the job from hell, i can come home, make some mac and cheese, and read, or watch tv without worrying about anyone else. it's a nice feeling.

after way too much time troubleshooting, i am writing this post with zempt! i can't believe how long it took me to set up an offline blogging client, considering how often my computer crashes, which subsequently causes me to lose posts. normally it's annoying, but now that i have so little 'free time', i never feel like re-typing.

i got my e-mail from phish the other day, telling me that i got all the tickets i mail-ordered for. this is v. exciting, since i didn't get mail order last time. plus me and D get to see phish together for the first time since 1998!

D also go tix to see coldplay, but i have tickets to see champions on ice the same night. i chose champions on ice. geeky, arent' i?

things are looking good for our memorial day bbq, too. we're doing it on saturday, because we figure that it will be less crowded. should be fun... good friends, good food, and hopefully by the end of the month we'll have some sun! and i learned my lesson last time... i'll wear lots of sunscreen this year!!!
